SPECIAL PURPOSE MACHINES
Our very first in-house project as Dalton Farrow Designs was this pick and place unit for loading/unloading stainless steel sinks to various presses. There were single drainers, double drainers both right and left hand, some were post formed, there was even a round lid, (there were 11 variants in all), hence the array of locators on the load table.
Missing from this photograph are the grippers for the pick and place unit which utilised vacuum cups to grip the sinks and sensors for component variant identification.
If you require dedicated or flexible Automation, we have worked on in-line cells, rotary cells and pallet machines, including designing loading carousels, skive off units and rotary table, implementing the use of bowl feeders and linear feeders... from pressing bushes and seals into housings to complete auto assembly of drill gear boxes, clutch assembly to automatic screw and nut feeders and screw driving.
